Vit Hopley

Vit Hopley is a London-based visual artist and writer, who has recently exhibited work in the Derby Festival of Photography and in After the Sublime at Cambridge Darkrooms.

Suddenly Science Falls Silent and Mythology Speaks (1992) is a photography of a wooden chair in an unruly grassy garden upon which the artist has superimposed a diagram and a sketch of a bee. There is a surreal feel to the piece, because of the slightly oversaturated colours of the photograph and the contract between the impeccably-delineated chair in the centre, surrounded by what seems like an abandoned and overgrown garden. This is heightened by the juxtaposition of the scientific graph and the eerie photograph.
